Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, has faulted the efforts of parents at instilling moral values on their children adding that the problem the moral decadence that our youths are portraying now is as the result of failure on the part of the parents.
The minister said this during a stakeholders’ engagement with 77 district heads, religious and community leaders from the 23 Local Government Areas of Kaduna State on Saturday October 31,
According to Ahmed, parents have failed their children by not instilling same values they had in them.
She said, “We are calling the attention of parents that we have failed our children in the sense that the kind of values we use to have is no more.
“We need to remind ourselves that our children need to be upright and that this criminality going on, on daily basis, is not for their benefits and the benefit of the state and country.”
